The nerd in me must have this, but I hate how there's two. I'm thinking the GS version might be more rare, but I prefer the doctor. Siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh.

I may have to switch my order from GS to Amazon, the Plague Doctor is way cooler than the Harlequin...

Yeah, more Tim Burton-ish. Plus Amazon gets the unique armor (fucking badass IMO) over a multiplayer skin.

Just waiting on Amazon to list the CE. . .

Yeah idk if gamestop had the choice of which one they wanted, but if they did they really dropped the ball. The doctor is so much cooler. Too bad it wasnt GS version because i have 214 credit to spend. :( Then again, usbisoft games go down to 40 bucks really quick, so i dunno if the extra stuff is worth 40-60 dollars more. But i am a fan of the series.

No steelbook? Pass. Seriously, If you're going to go Collector's Edition, at least throw in a steelbook case, not something I can get off the shelf and could never tell the difference.

NOOO I want the codex box, but seriously, for $100, I personally think GT5 got a better collector edition than this.

$40 for a most likely poor quality Jack n the box? That's a little steep.

Same thing I thought about the GoWIII box. At least this soundtrack is on a disc and can't be downloaded by anyone, though!

hmmm multiplayer looks really boring to me. Just walking around till you see a guy and kill him. And chasing others on the rooftops will just get frustrating when you end up jumping or falling when you wanted to do something else.

The multiplayer is awesome, I was not really looking forward to the game until I played it at E3. Then I played it 7 times in one day. It's a lot different then most rehashes of multiplayer game modes and you run into a lot of fun scenarios; plus pretending to be an NPC is funny.

I hear you. I'm a sucker for these things sadly. But ya there so lazy with these, they just throw the regular edition game in with the collectors edition. The only one i can think of with a different case is bioshock. This Assassins creed is over priced, but i will get it. The thing is you never know if these will clearance, or become rare. Most likely clearance though. As for the above post I think the GOW 3 edition was one of the worst over priced collector editions ever .

The GS barcode might be different, but it doesn't matter since they'd have both in the system. At any rate, I don't think they even need to scan it with the receipt.

They're going to have different UPCs without a doubt. Don't plan on being able to do it.

No, the character you choose: the Barber, harlequin, doctor, priest ect. ect. Is yours for that round (nobody else can choose the one you chose). And all the civilians are duplicates of yours and other peoples characters, so there will be groups of: barbers, doctors ect. And nobody playing has a name/indicator showing that they are an actual person. So finding out who is a real player and who is an NPC is tricky if your target is decent at blending in.

Ah that actually sounds interesting. So if you kill a civilian there would be negative consequences right?

Yea you lose your target and have to wait a bit to be assigned a new one. Also you get more points assassinating your target without him knowing. IF you start running towards your target he will be alerted and can run away. If he loses you then you have to get another target; which wastes your time.
